In 48 Hours, Colorado's Wild Weather Sets Records For Both Heat And Snow

Some Colorado residents woke up to something that felt crazy after sweltering through the Labor Day weekend: snow.

This roller coaster forecast was "truly something that I've never seen," says assistant state climatologist Becky Bolinger.

In Fort Collins, the Colorado Climate Center at Colorado State University measured 0.3 inches of snow Tuesday morning, tweeting "the earliest accumulating snow ever observed in over 130 years of records!"

That followed Sunday's high of 99 degrees, the highest temperature ever observed so late in September. The National Weather Service says Fort Collins hit 100 degrees on Saturday.
